Hello Beautiful People,
As you all may know this week is World breastfeeding week!! And yes I’m all about promoting, educating and raising awareness about important women’s health issues like breastfeeding. This week is about normalising breastfeeding! That means addressing important issues like not sexualising it, not expecting women to cover up, not denying what is a natural process for lots of mothers and babies! It’s not a week to proclaim that breastfeeding mothers are better than those that formula feed! Over the last few decades formula companies have done their utmost to undermine the importance of breastfeeding in an attempt to make millions off their products!! If they were just about feeding babies they would be not for profit organisations, however I digress………
I’ve breastfed and formula fed all my kids at various times. Both are challenging yes! However this week is just about acknowledging those challenges associated with breastfeeding……. So imagine my surprise when Constance Hall blocked me from her page after questioning her on her post about International Breastfeeding Week?
Con wrote acknowledging International Breastfeeding Week and then went on to talk about all the awesome formula feeding mums out there…… I have no problem with this as such because I myself have done both but I was merely saying that you can support and promote one cause without undermining another?!
Well I said something along the lines of saying “what about formula feeding mums on breastfeeding week is like saying #notallmen when discussing DV”……. Anyway something like that…… Next comment I made was questioning Con when she told a poster that she overheard nurses and midwives being rude to mothers who couldn’t breastfeed….. I never said it didn’t happen, I just asked if she made a complaint about it? She didn’t reply to me….. Her sister did though, she said something along the lines of “yes she heard the nurses say that and no she did not complain because she was a first time mum worried about her prem baby”……….
So I would have replied to that but wasn’t allowed to because I’d been blocked by then….
Hhhhmmmm so it seems Con is only all about supporting Queens if they support her unconditionally and subscribe to all her beliefs…. How about we all support each other in our different actions and beliefs….
Supporting one cause does not mean you’re undermining another…….
Yes unfortunately some nurses/midwives can be rude as shit…….. Being a nurse I’ve seen it first hand and if I see it I call it out straight away!
As a patient I’ve made several complaints before in regards to shit treatment, especially after my shit emergency C-section!
I’ll always stick up for myself and all the beautiful people struggling out there!!
And I’ll always endeavour to respect those with a difference of opinion to me. Further to that a little healthy banter about those differences of opinion can help each other to see another point of view…….
I’m all about being enlightened by others and helping to enlighten them in some way……
That is of course if I don’t get blocked for my opinion…….. 😉😜😘💗❤️💖
